Allergan Medical Institute

Summary of work

The Allergan Medical Institute® (AMI) aims to improve the safety of aesthetic or reconstructive treatments and the outcomes for patients undergoing such procedures by providing clinicians with the technical skills, anatomical knowledge and product awareness to tailor their treatments, minimise the risk of complications and achieve the best possible results. Since 2012, an esteemed faculty of international experts in aesthetic medicine and plastic surgery has led the programme, gathering insights to inform education, training and professional development opportunities, which have reached over 27,000 clinicians from Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, Canada and Australia. A key part of the programme has been the MD Codes™, a comprehensive and practical management approach developed by leading expert and AMI Faculty member Maurico de Maio. The MD Codes™ is now an established clinical tool used widely by physicians to standardise techniques, helping to deliver consistent and optimal patient outcomes and creating an international language for injection techniques.

The AMI model gained internal recognition within Allergan in 2015, resulting in the roll-out of the AMI globally (ex-US). The programme is set to replace all other medical education initiatives internationally in 2016 and will also launch beyond aesthetics to house all medical education across the gastrointestinal therapeutic division.

Judges' comments

The Allergan Medical Institute was rated very highly by the judges in terms of its impact on equipping physicians to do their job. It’s really hard for a company to own the training in any particular space - so all credit for having that ambition and going for it with this big, expansive programme.
